On September 18, 2018 the Government Emergency Ordinance no. 84 of September 13, 2018 for the amendment of certain enactments in the constructions area (the “GEO”) has been published in the Official Gazette of Romania no. 795.

The GEO is aimed at enabling the hand-over and commissioning of the lots, sections, sectors or articles of national interest infrastructure works included in the building permit, in case such can be used separately, in accordance with their destination. A regulation concerning hand-over of road and railway infrastructure works of national interest is to be drafted by the Ministry of Transport, to be subsequently endorsed by the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Administration and eventually approved by government decision.
